Following Brexit, the UKCA mark was introduced in the UK as a replacement for the CE mark that’s mandatory in the EU. On August 1st 2023 the UK Government announced that the UKCA mark and the corresponding process was to be suspended indefinitely. So now as a manufacturer, you have the choice: products on the British government’s list, such as machinery and electronic components, can be imported into the UK with a CE mark or a UKCA mark.

We've updated our popular Basis of CE Marking Training Course to include elements with a focus on UKCA Marking.
The updated course, now called ‘Basis of CE & UKCA Marking’, aims to provide participants with comprehensive knowledge through step-by-step classroom sessions and practical exercises on a 3D machine model. After the training delegates should be able to assess the status of their own machines and their conformity with a detailed understanding of the process.

Pilz's take on the current status of what is happening regarding CE marking and UKCA marking of machinery was presented by Machinery Safety Expert Alex Bryce on Friday November 11th 2022.
Following Brexit, it was the intention that UKCA Marking, not CE Marking, would be mandatory for the UK market. As of the 1st August 2023 this has been postponed indefinitely - this means that manufacturers have the choice - import products, such as machinery and electronic components, with a CE mark OR a UKCA mark. In our webinar (dated November 2022) our presenter looked at the key differences between CE & UKCA Marking and what this means for manufacturers in, and manufacturers importing in to, the UK.
We also covered what CE & UKCA Marking actually is, what they mean and who has duties to comply.
